Over the past week I've put in 3 hours per day, last night I did about 5 hours, and today I studied almost 11 hours (rahh). The other three weeks I was putting in about 8-10 hours per week.
Here's the sort of problem I'm encountering... I've memorized (flash cards n shit) almost 300 vocab words, but on the verbal section there are still always a small handful of words I don't know that will cause me to get questions wrong. I feel like I'm destined to get 2 analogies wrong and 2 antonyms wrong at least on every test just because regardless of how many words I seem to learn, there are always a few that comes up on the test that I don't know.
Is it just a matter of luck? Should I pray that I just happen to not get words I don't know on Tuesday, does anyone have any ideas as to what I could possibly do to tighten it up I guess? I'm not having any trouble at all on reading comp or sentence completion (maybe in those 2 sections I'll only get 1 wrong in total)... but analogies and antonyms seem to trip me up regardless of how much I practice.
Sorta ditto for math. I'll maybe come across 1-2 problems at most on a test that I don't know how to do, but then I'll always get a small handful of problems wrong due to careless mistakes. That hasn't really changed either. I'll get a few wrong, then when I go review the answers I realize it was just something dumb (like forgetting to plug in a fraction to check if the two columns are equal in all cases, etc).
Basically, I feel like the only thing preventing me from performing how I want is something that continued studying can't really help - if that makes sense.... has anyone else ever dealt with this / remedied it?
To try and describe my problem, it's as if I don't have that precision and consistency. Even though I generally know all the material and all the words, I'm forever bound to make a few errors. Think I can fix that problem in the 1.5 days left until the test?
I have 2 practice exams left that I plan on doing tomorrow, then just a few review sections, and I dunno what else ....
Just felt like BLAWGIN IT UP
